“HTC 2Q7A100 is expected to come with dual selfie cameras, 6GB RAM and runs on Android 9.0 Pie”
HTC’s upcoming mid-range phone with model number 2Q7A100 appeared on Geekbench benchmarking platform back in April, revealing few key specifications of the handset. Now, the phone is certified by NCC in Taiwan, suggesting it might have identical design as the company’s One series phones. It could have a tall 18:9 aspect ratio display with no notches and seems to rock dual selfie cameras on the front. The volume rockers and power button are placed on the right side.
Furthermore, the NCC listing also confirms the phone will be available in grey colour option, but we can expect other colour options as well when it goes official. It is just 12mm thick and could bear a plastic build. However, there are sizeable thick bezels on top and bottom, which looks quite dated. According to Geekbench listing, the HTC 2Q7A100 is said to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC coupled with 6GB of RAM and runs on software version Android 9 Pie OS with HTC’s custom skin on top. It is likely to come with a full-HD+ display with 1,080 x 2.160 pixels resolution.
Separately, another mid-range HTC phone with model number 2Q741 was also listed on the Geekbench benchmarking platform recently. However, we don’t have a marketing moniker of the handset yet. The handset is powered by the MediaTek Helio P35 SoC clocked at 2.3GHz octa-core processor, coupled with 6GB of RAM. While it is not confirmed, it could be the MediaTek variant of the HTC 2Q7A100 and could be specific to select few markets. It is expected to pack 6GB RAM and runs on Android 9.0 Pie out of the box. Since everything is just speculation at the moment, we suggest you take this with a pinch of salt until an official announcement is made.
